Millennials and Public Libraries

According to the Pew Research Center, millennials have made greater use of public library spaces and websites within the last year than other generational groups, including Gen X, Baby Boomers, and the Silent Generation. The study also presents other key findings about public library users, including the fact that mobile app use for public libraries is less than 10% of adults across the board. Check out the article to see what else the study revealed.
